Event Details

Henrietta Howard had pleasure gardens at Marble Hill, which disappeared into the Park over time. As part of the “Marble Hill Revived” project, English Heritage is restoring the 18th century gardens. Just how do you go about doing that?

Come along to a free talk on Thursday, April 29th from 6-7p.m. to hear the answers from Kate Slack, English Heritage’s Head Gardener at Marble Hill, who is managing the restoration. With the help of many photographs she will lead us through the history of the garden, the type of planting chosen, how she and her team are undertaking the current garden project, and what are the plans for the future.

The talk will last around forty minutes, leaving plenty of time for you to ask her questions.
